Joe Meissner also told the story of 4 Vietnamese heroes. First was the story of the Trung sisters who were Vietnamese military leaders who ruled for three years after rebelling in 40 AD against the first Chinese domination of Vietnam. They are regarded as national heroines of Vietnam.



Next was the story of Trieu Thi Trinh, also called Lady Trieu (B Trieu) who is called the Vietnamese Joan of Arc. She saw the way her people were oppressed by the Chinese and fought back.
